    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    Joost:

    Thanks for explaining Spyder and Kudrya! When you mentioned “oval”, I was looking for something like 911-style oval, and couldn’t for the life of me see what you meant!

    You are welcome Joost! 

    Have wondered a bit on design too. Cant say its a 100% porsche language.

    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    Now that is strange!


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    No rear wing. Interesting look from the rear:


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    Yep, pure shadow concept. In theory it is the best from aero point of view. In reality - very sensitive to suspension setup and kerbs. 


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    Ahahah, Zurlinden went to multimatic. If you cant build your own chassis, control the one who can)))

    Testing has begun:

    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    The engine confirmed, it will be v8 bi turbo. I think it is the unit from cayenne and panamera

    Dull(( I wonder they still have no hybrid unit...


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    The last I heard , the supplier is still manufacturing the system.


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    I wonder why do they need to rev the 4l twin turbo v8 up to 10k rpm


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    BTW - I suspect those pictures are from the roll-out and not from the actual Test.

    Great! Considering that williams engineering has changed the owner several days ago it will be funny to see everyone without the hybrid system)))

    Clearly it is weissach


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    What I see is the 200 bar direct fuel injection pump. Also looks like the gearbox is made from metal casing, magnesium i think. No expensive solutions like carbon fiber case with alu cartridge in 919. From the engine that is chosen, brake disks and gearbox config this car is much much more conventional than a totally inconventional 919.

    Around the exhaust shielded toray carbon fiber heat protection. Probably it is hot vee.

    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    Looks better than the 919, imo.

    Agreed!

    Yes, but they may be testing there...although I doubt it.

    919 was not the beauty, but it was the highest tech car. This one no, but it was expected

    I dont know... maybe, however weissach is too small to test such a car. Maybe they continue to test the systems.


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    Yes. It would be just a general test.

    However, it is more likely that they are testing on an undisclosed track somewhere away from the prying eyes of the motorsport paparazzi.


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    Yes, anyway it is all very interesting. Cannot wait for 2023 le mans, it is gonna be epic (of course if there will be no neocovid discovered in south africa)))


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    My speculation of what the 12 driver line-up could look like:

    Porsche works drivers (age/nationality) Championship Class
    Gianmaria Bruni (39/Italy) WEC LMDH
    Kévin Estre (32/France) WEC LMDH
    Mathieu Jaminet (26/France) WEC LMDH
    Frédéric Makowiecki (40/France) WEC LMDH
    Pascal Wehrlein (26/Germany) WEC LMDH
    Nico Hulkenburg (34/Germany) WEC LMDH

     

    Porsche works drivers (age/nationality) Championship Class
    Matt Campbell (25/Australia) IMSA LMDH
    Neel Jani (36/Switzerland) IMSA LMDH
    Laurens Vanthoor (29/Belgium) IMSA LMDH
    Josef Newgarden (30/USA) IMSA LMDH
    Felipe Nasr (29/Brasil) IMSA LMDH
    Dane Cameron (32/USA) IMSA LMDH

     


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    Nice list!


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    Also thought about it. I would change hulkenberg for lotterer. 


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    I would rather change Bruni for Lotterer


    Re: VW Group at Le Mans

    BTW - Hulkenburg is pure speculation based on passed history and (apparent) availability.
